Adjustment Bureau press
  • The press junket for The Adjustment Bureau has started in New York. In Matt's interview with Access Hollywood he said the filming of Liberace has been postponed until June 2012, and that last Thursday's episode of 30 Rock would be his final appearance. Four separate interview clips with Matt and Emily Blunt are at the Access Hollywood site. There's also a fun joint interview with Matt and Emily at Extra.

    As for her handsome co-star, Matt Damon, Emily said working with the Academy Award-winner was nothing short of “amazing.”

    “[Matt] is the worst guy ever,” Emily said, jokingly. “He’s actually Captain Delightful! He is the coolest guy and my friend and I just love him. He was amazing to work with and we laughed so hard and I think that really makes the experience.”

    Emily wasn’t the only one who found Matt mesmerizing – his star power distracted the film’s background actors as well.

    “Most of the time there was a guy on the loudspeaker yelling, ‘Do not look at Matt Damon!’ because all the extras were just staring at him,” she laughed. “When they meet Matt, he’s a massive movie star. I feel like I see people’s brains melting when they see him!”

  • Electronic press clip videos for The Adjustment Bureau are available at Trailer Addict, including B-roll footage, interviews with cast and crew (including praise for Matt from Terence Stamp and John Slattery), and more clips from the film. A quote from producer Chris Moore:

    Chris Moore: "Matt is truly one of the most authentic people you will meet, period. And I think today that’s pretty rare. He’s not hiding anything, he’s got no other agenda, he wants the movie to be good, he wants to do a good job, he really believes in the people he signs up to work with and he’s going to be a good collaborator with them."

  • From an interview with Matt for True Grit, with a longer version available here, and a video version here:

    Q: Did you take your children on to the set for True Grit?
    A: I took Gia on set and she was totally cool. She wasn’t quite two years old at the time and for her it was all about the horses. I wasn’t working so much that day – they were doing the scene where Rooster says ‘fill your hands, you son of a bitch...’ So I wasn’t needed for a few hours as Barry (Pepper, who plays Lucky Ned Pepper) and Jeff were doing their thing. Barry’s horse was called Topper and Gia was initially a little afraid – so she went from being scared to interested to fascinated and then suddenly, she was sitting on Topper’s back. And literally, for months afterwards every horse she saw was Topper. It was really cool.

  • From a review of True Grit at the Guardian:

    So where's the advantage of another True Grit?

    The answer, I think, lies in the revitalised figure of LaBoeuf, excellently played by Matt Damon. At first glance, this True Grit does not have the warmth of John Wayne's unselfconscious, roistering turn. But this is partly because the Coens have transferred some of this warmth to the third figure in the film.

    In 1969, it was all about Mattie and Rooster's comic father-daughter relationship and LaBoeuf was a minor figure. Now it is an emotional triangle, and Damon gives a really outstanding performance as the prickly Texan Ranger, unsure whether to dislike Mattie or fall in love with her, and whose relationship with Mattie finally becomes poignant and tender, a gallant brotherly concern. Damon comes close, very close, to upstaging Bridges.

    Rats - too bad about Liberace being postponed.

    And that interviewer for Extra? Man, he's terrible.

    Re: Interviews

    Thanks for the link to the German interview. Very interesting read.
    I'm just wondering about one point: Matt says that his most recent argument with his mother was abouth which school Alexia should go to. Is she due to go to high school yet? Hasn't she just started a new school when they moved to NYC. Maybe they are not happy with the school they picked? It can't jhave to do with a school in LA because Matt says that his "5 ladies only visit him there". any ideas?

    Re: Interviews

    I think that interview had some dodgy timeline issues and quotes (and was possibly mixed with older quotes). Matt talked about moving his family to NY in September, which was in 2009, not 2010. At best, the interview was done in October 2010, I think. And I wasn't sure if the quote was visit or live in LA (since everybody is currently based there, I think).

    Re: Interviews

    What disappointment! The newspaper usually a very good reputation for high quality journalism.
    I thought the interview had taken place in January as Matt states that he is about to do a bigger project in LA. The quote definitely says that his family visit, but if the overall interview is dodgy the quote might not reliable. And the translation might not be good either.
    Shame on you, Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

    Partial answer

    In a satellite interview this morning, Matt said Lucy and the kids are all based in LA at the moment and she was going to miss the premiere but that Lucy surprised him by getting the red eye and arriving with Stella earlier today to be with him for Valentine's Day. John Krasinski is in LA and will not attend.
